Houston Heights (often referred to simply as “The Heights“) is a community in northwest-central Houston, Texas, United States. “The Heights” is often referred to colloquially to describe a larger collection of neighborhoods next to and including the actual Houston Heights.
The Heights includes the oldest neighborhood in Houston dating back to the late 18oos. Locals were once fleeing the area to have access to bigger cities in Houston and home values dropped exponentially. Over the last several decades a surge in popularity has lead to vacant lots worth over a quart of a million dollars. The Heights population is filled with diverse Houstonians that are drawn to rich architecture and quick access to the city and all the amenities.
